After 22 years at the helm for the New Zealand men's sevens team, Tietjens stepped down after a disastrous Olympic campaign last month.

RadioSport reports that Kenya is eager to get Tietjens' services in helping out their national team.

The Kenya Rugby Union claims it is in talks with Tietjens and that he is set to visit the country shortly.

Kenya have emerged as a serious Sevens powerhouse after taking out the Singapore leg of the World Series in April, beating Olympic gold medallists Fiji 30-7.

New Zealand Rugby is yet to name the new coach for the All Blacks Sevens team for the 2016-2017 Sevens World Series.
